to understand how the obama administration could have come up with a story this was anything other than a terrorist attack from the beginning. it had nothing to do with the video. we are not going to cover up a failed foreign policy episode. and read in the "new york times" all of the successes of the obama administration. you cannot have a country where the commander in chief gets to celebrate successes and hide his failures. >> bret: you think we will get to bottom of it? >> if we don't have survivors come forward in an appropriate way, i will continue to make life difficult in the senate. i am begging my house colleagues if they will not voluntarily release the names of these survivors through the congress for appropriate interviews to get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi that you subpoena them. house republicans, jason chaffetz, frank wolf have done a great job. but to our leadership in the house you have to up your game on benghazi. >> bret: what is the end of this? if you have people testify and they find out thing what is is the end game? >> if they knew the truth about

the united states, the obama administration now expected to announce that it will put additional resources to protect the united states. the catch here, fred, is that it's going to take several years and costs about $200 million to open up some of these silos. some congressional republicans i was speaking with say they argued against closing down some of these silos a few years ago when the obama administration did so. they said at the time the administration felt there wasn't a needed threat, that they didn't need as many interceptors. now they're going back and having to reopen them. some of the republican congressional folks i've been speaking with say the threat was there, the intel was there and now it's going to cost a whole lot of money to get these turned back on. >> all right. 14 more interceptors to be put in place. thank you so much. chris lawrence, appreciate that from the pentagon. i know he'll be briefing us later on as well. >>> for all you tech fans, samsung's new galaxy s4 is here. we're previewing the features. and why you might be giving up more of yourself these days on
administration to be deployed in 2009. but as part of the obama administration effort, basically, to tank our national missile defense program, they were put off, even in 2009 north korea exploded a second nuclear device. so, it's a step in the right direction. it's too late, but it's still a step in the right direction. there are other aspects, such as the canceled plans for radars and missile sites in poland and the czech republic and the famous reset buttons, there were casualties there and that will will have to be put back in place. >> gregg: and a little experience sometimes burnishes your wisdom. the north koreans, as i understand it, are trying to miniaturize their nukes to place them atop missiles and trying to develop missiles that could actually reach the west coast of the united states and hawaii. how serious a threat is that? >> well, i think it's a very serious threat. not today, but you know, one reason, as you said earlier, you need to get these additional missiles installed, missile for missile defense purposes, you don't sort of push a button and get ready. the north koreans
bellicose language. this is really a disappointment on the part of the obama administration more broadly when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is
and five years, four and a half since the obama administration took over, what's it going to take? >> i think general shinseki is an example of the many public servants at the va and he is a decorated veteran himself. i've dealt with va officials in arkansas and washington here and they want to do the right thing. they may lack the resources and best practices. in some ways the department of veteran affairs is like an insurance company or claims processing company. they don't always have the best and most modern practices and one thing we could do in congress through oversight is help to ensure they get the training and resources they need. i think the will and the desire are certainly there to serve veterans if you look at an organization like walmart, my home state just announced a new initiative where they're going to hire every veteran who applies for a job, as long as they have a clean background check, they want that experience there. the country certainly appreciates veterans and wants to serve them. >> good intentions just don't get them those benefits soon enough. >> right whic
, as the obama administration continues to make assessments about the developing situation overseas, questions are raised if the u.s. should intervene in the civil war. the president said the chemical weapons against the syrian people would constitute a red line. remember this? >> we have been very clear to the assad regime, but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons being moved around or utilized. that would change my calculus, change my equation. >> sean: was that red line crossed today in syria? how will these events impact the president's trip to israel? helping me answer the questions and much more, colonel oliver north and juan williams, gentlemen, welcome back to "hannity." >> sean. >> sean: let's go country by country. north korea threatens to nuke us. they have a new video out showing them blowing up our capital. what has obama done, nothing. china cyber warfare and stealing our secrets, what has obama done, nothing. iran's advancement with nuclear weapons, nothing. and russia flying over air space, nothing. and
timetable differs from the obama administration's timetable. they believe that if iran does decide it wants to make a nuclear weapon, then it's a year out. so they differ in that. but there is certainly agreement on what to do about iran. and both of them have said that the red line is, iran must not obtain nuclear weapons, and for iran's part, iran has always said that it is not trying to do that, but only using it for civilian purposes. ashleigh? >> i want to also, sara, thank you, bring in jessica yellin, our white house correspondent, our chief white house correspondent. jessica, it is no secret that americans do believe that israel is a, either a great allay or a friend, to the tune of about 80% of them. but when it comes to just what we should be doing, if israel decides on any kind of preemptive attack on israel, or any kind of attack, it's almost 50/50. in fact, i believe the numbers are 49, yes, 49, no, we should support that nation. those are the kind of numbers that are not lost on an administration, when they have to go in and negotiate conversations. how public will those conve
, and the accusations flying back and forth about chemical weapons. the obama administration has said in the past this would be a game changer that is a red line. as we were discussing earlier with iran watson, tens of thousands of people have been readily killed by conventional weapons, why would this make it different? >> i think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so
of plant management and customer service. the obama administration is in charge of the i.t. network required for all that. >> how will this affect cost were states on average? >> it is unclear. there is money and they forgo care act for that. some of that is impacted by sequestration. everyone is convinced that the obama administration will make sure that there is money to set off the exchanges, regardless of the impact of sequestration. >> where are we in the process? sequestration is happening now. but as far as one exchanges have to be set up, there have been several deadlines that have been put in place. >> some are several months away. but in terms of the forgo care act, it turns exchanges need to be running october 1, in order to be in compliance. there are a lot of questions as whether they will be ready in time to get those complex i.t. networks in place in time and whether states that have held out for for where they want to do will have enough time. >> any chance they will be able to get some sort of delay or exemption from the federal government? >> they haven't had expli
.scorching about a dozen cars. no one on the ground was hurt. it's not clear yet what caused the crash. the obama administration signalled today that it's taking north korea's nuclear threat seriously. kron four's grant lodes has the details of the major expansion of something called ground=based mid- course defense. it's a defensive shield few people are even aware of. return to index of stories...

a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? --t the obama administration the obama in administration is sending a signal at the worst possible time. we talk, and they and rich. they do not take us seriously, and is leading from behind strategy, it is not working. think about the message that we are sending. president ignored the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exits. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in anq, and iran has become important player in iraq. -- wax we are going to leave it here. but, i know a little bit about the business and nothing about politics. i won't wander into areas where i am on competent. jazzknow something about that i thought i would share with you. i thought i would share with you. hisyou hear about is granddaughter. she is two years old. an important statement. governor bush was the most successful governor of his era.

house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran
't seem like she's giving hints that the obama administration is going to act, but she wants to first make sure that other people will act with the united states if there's action. so explain, explain what she, what she's doing in france. >> guest: well, first, let me give you the context of that trip because it was one of the most insane trips that i have been on. everything was on the move. it felt like the world was ending. you had the earthquake in japan with the tsunami there and the nuclear crisis, you had a crisis with pakistan where the cia contractor raymond davis was detained, you had, um, the revolution that was just ending in egypt, hosni mubarak had just stepped down, tunisia had already happened, the revolution was ongoing, the uprising was ongoing in libya, syria was just erupting, and you had a couple of thousand saudi and emirati troops filing into, marching into bahrain to try to quell the unrest there. all of this happening at the same time while we're on this flight to paris, and the u.s. is coming under intense pressure to try to do, intense pressure to do something ab
, for immigration, for gun control, for a variety of issues that the obama administration is is trying to push. >> but the question is, lauren, can... even though the o.f.a. has gotten the 33 million facebook friends and 22 million twitter followers and so on, can it galvanize the kind of grass roots support that it did during a campaign when you had a definite opponent in mitt romney and not just... >> brown: exactly. the question is, what are they asking people to do? during a campaign it's vote for me and get your friends to vote for me. >> right. brown: what do they ask now? it's give me $5 and give me your email. when they posted an article, they posted an article on barack obama dot-com by jim massena the former campaign manager who is now running o.f.a. 47 people tweeted it. for obama for for president obama and his group to have that kind of article sitting on barack obama and only have 47 people tweet it shows that they're not getting the ground swell of support that they did during the presidential election. >> but they may be getting the ground swell support from well-heeled donors
this thing here now with this obama administration where they treat our enemies with much more concern than they do our friends. >> sean: here we have sequester weekend and he gave morsi 250 million taxpayer dollars and yet, he's closing down the white house. let me ask you about the other three situations i brought up. north korea, russia and china. these are significant. there seems to be willingness to take liberties with this president. >> sean, they're pushing a president they think is a-- is weak. >> sean: is a weak president. >> i hate to say that. >> sean: isn't he weak because he hasn't responded, has he? >> sure, the idea of leading from behind says okay, you want to lead from behind we're going to push you as far as we can push you until we get some kind of reaction and get as much advantage as we can. this whole idea of basically destroying our navy is idiotic when you consider that in china, a great debate is going on as to how big their navy should be. because they want to control the pacific, or some of them do. china, after all, is a dynamic society. there are people in chin
